Music while we waited for our train

One of the things I like about Israeli train stations is that most of them have pianos that commuters can play while waiting for their trains. We had a short wait for our train home after our visit to the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History today, and we were treated to a mini-performance.

By the time this creative commuter finished playing, he’d attracted a small audience of fellow travelers who sat around him to listen to him play.

Beautiful music from Planet Earth 2

I’ve been listening to a Hans Zimmer radio station on Spotify, and this gem from the Planet Earth 2 soundtrack popped up, wow:

Love The Strings In Tall Heights’ “Horse To Water”

I really enjoy Tall Heights‘ “Horse to Water”. In particular, I love the strings you hear in the chorus. The music video is a little odd, but the music is terrific:

I first heard the track on Spotify so here it is:

A Great Spotify Playlist to Relax With

I’m a recent convert to Spotify and I’m really enjoying it. I discovered this playlist that has some great, new (to me) music that’s perfect to relax with:

One of my new favourites from this playlist is this one from Little May:

The War on Drugs and the beauty of Pain

I first heard Pain by The War on Drugs in an iTunes Radio playlist recently. It’s one of my new favourite tracks:

I follow a couple bands that just create beautiful, meaningful music. I think I’ve found another to add to my little list.

Today’s musical salvation – “It’s In The Way That You Use It”

Some days a little musical assistance makes a lot of difference when the day seems to be crawling towards its conclusion.

Today’s musical salvation is an oldie from Eric Clapton titled “It’s In The Way That You Use It” from way back in 1986.

I created a playlist with a bunch of oldies, mostly from the 20th century. I have it playing on my iPod Classic today and I am grateful for it!

How Irish dancers from Riverdance do weddings

Irish dancers performing in Feet of Flames

This video is great. These Irish dancers are apparently part of the Riverdance cast. This must have been an awesome wedding to be a guest at.

I love Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. This style of Irish dancing really appeals to me and being at a wedding where a professional dance troupe break out in dance like this would be amazing.

3 flavours of AC/DC’s Thunderstruck

Flavours of Thunderstruck

Whether you are a fan of rock band AC/DC or not, you may enjoy these three flavours of their hit song “Thunderstruck”. I was watching videos on YouTube the other day and enjoyed these renditions.

The first version is the band in concert. If you aren’t familiar with the song, this will give you a good idea of how they perform it:

This second version is a cover performed by a Finnish band called Steve’n’Seagulls. It is very country!

This last version is another cover performed by a duo called 2Cellos. You can probably guess how this is going to go.
